How long do Steam sales last?

Arma II is $24...not sure if it's going to get better than that. <_<

Oh it says it ends July 23rd. Do prices that are already on sale ever drop lower?

If it's not a daily deal, it might get better than that. Otherwise, buy it on the last day of the sale.

Steams sales rules:

* Wait for the daily deals. Do not buy a game that isn't on a daily deal, because it may well be a lot cheaper the next day.
* If you miss a daily deal, still do not buy the game. Typically the last day (or possibly two) will be 'recap' deals to give you a second chance.
* If you get to the end of the sale and a game you want is not in the recap sales and you still want to buy it, then you may now purchase it, or wait for the next big sale at Christmas.

The biggest rule of them all is stop buying games that most likely will end up being in your already huge backlog and by the time you get to it probably 3 summer sales have gone past already. Play what you already own and appreciate them.

From what I've seen if it's 20% regularly, it has a chance to be 40% on the daily.
